Why are Iranian carpets exported abroad?
It is necessary to introduce any industry that is monopolized by a particular region or country, and export. By exporting that industry or product, it is introduced to the world. The carpet industry is not exempt from this rule and it must be exported to introduce foreign currency into the country, to set the economic cycle in motion, etc., which are important aspects of the export process. Of course, unfortunately, the countries that were the main customers of Iranian handwoven carpets in the past are now buying their copy designs.
One of the reasons for the decrease in the export of Iranian carpets to some countries is the American sanctions against Iran, which has caused us to lose the American carpet market and a decrease of several million dollars can be seen in the export of our carpets.
